Parent Gene: FTO

Importance: 3
Less common allele: T = 27%
More common allele: C = 73%
My Genotype: Log In
Risk Allele: T

Disease/Trait: Obesity

The T allele of rs9941349 is reported to be associated with Obesity (R) . Your genotype was not identified for this SNP so we are unable to comment on your association with Obesity (extreme).
